Yeah, the cybermen didn't stand a chance. Did anybody else notice that only daleks were sucked into the void? I mean, where did those 4 million cybermen go?

City of Death? hmm it rings a bell but not quite sure, a few details please mate.

:the first classic one I saw. I can't say anything about the classic Dalek episodes

They were pretty good but in the black and white episodes it seemed that there guns just had a bit on the end that went up and down (when they couldn't budget that cheap gas).

because of the fact that when the classic epiosodes were being shown here in Australia the legal troble with the holder of Terry Nation's esate was still going on so the Dalek episodes couldn't be shown :(

I'm strangly curious please tell me more.

If they did something like this the show could continue for a long time to come.

Or they could just clone him. Also until the new series was shown i never understood why when someone died the Dr didn't just jump in the Tardis travel back in time again, you know abit earlier and stop them before the killing starts.

So that episode with Eccelston (sp) and those reaper creatures that trap everyone in a church really explained a few things.

If you look closely at the Cybermen in the street they Blur and get sucked in to but you can only see the outlines of Daleks in thee big...... sucktion scene so blame those lazy guys in the CGI area of the special effects department.

Okay. The special effects were brilliant with the daleks getting sucked, if only they had spent as much time n the cybermen it would have been even better.

A point about Cybermen there 2 uniform Lumic should have made it so there were specialised.

i.e. Scientists and mechanics.

I mean Cybermen do have all the knowledge of man but they were to generalised if they had a few "thinkers" like the cult of Skaro (sp) they keep upgrading themselves like better lasers and jetpacks.

Also in the Classic Dr Who why was Gold lethal to Cybermen?

I don't know, I suppose they needed a way of killing them so they made it one that was hard to get in a crisis thus making it more action packed.

Becuase they needed a weakness for the doctor to be able to beat them as in the classic series the Doctor didn't abuse his sonic screw driver and use it for everythign from making tea to destroying an entire race of people.

10 quid says that The Doctor used the Sonic Screw Driver at the end of the time war that wiped out the time lords to activate the big red button which blew everyone up.

True i guess also he actualy used the sonic screwdriver as a screwdriver in the classic. Abused or no its still seems like a useful gadget to have around the house.

I think it wa sonly ever used as proper screwdrive ronce in the entire history of Dr Who. Peter Davidson has the claim to be the only Doctor who actually used the Sonic Screwdriver for its original purpose.

Abused or no its still seems like a useful gadget to have around the house.

I'd love one, just becuase it goes "Weeeooooo" and glows blue when you turn it on.

i dont think he abuses the sonic screwdriver. its used to open doors, hack into computer systems, and kill some of the bad guys. its a handy gadget to have. also you know its a poor thing in the season 1 episode with the 1940's england and the "dead" kid; he is trying to escape a hospital when capion jack's sonic gun's batteries die. the capton asks what kind of sonic weapon he has, and he doesnt want to share that he has a sonic screwdriver

I seem to remember they had these really campy "glitter guns" that clogged the Cybermen's respiritory system with gold particles... but then after a while it just got to the stage that the only way to kill Cybermen was with gold bullets. To this day I have no idea how that was supposed to work.

It was wrote by Douglus Adams (the guy who wrote Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galexy) in the Tom Baker era. The Doctor is in Paris when he and Romana and feel a time desturbanance. Also has a guest appearance by John Cleese.


I'm strangly curious please tell me more.

The guy that got the rights to the Dalek's design after Terry Nation (guy who created them) died, had a legal confict over royalties and money or something with the BBC, it meant that none of the classic Dalek epiosodes could be shown durning this time and the Daleks almost didn't appear in the first season of the new series but they managed to make a deal on that.

Yeah always wanted a sonic screw driver. Even if it was just for pointing it at stuff.

Didn't the Doctor use the time orb thingy on the episode 'Rise of the Cybermen' to kill ther Cybermen when he was surrounded? And I am pretty sure it shot a gold laser out of it. Correct me if I am wrong.

It's a screw driver. It might just be capable of opening doors in relaity, but when you use it as a weapon, a scanner to look for life signs and take medical readings it stops being a screw driver and starts being an uner piec eof machinery. if they didn't call it a screw driver I wouldn't have a problem but if they are going to call it that then sue it like one I say.

its a handy gadget to have. also you know its a poor thing in the season 1 episode with the 1940's england and the "dead" kid; he is trying to escape a hospital when capion jack's sonic gun's batteries die. the capton asks what kind of sonic weapon he has, and he doesnt want to share that he has a sonic screwdriver

I remember that, it was quite funny :-)

But if its so bad then why can it do so much?

I still think he abuses it though. But I've been brought up on classic Who and it wasn't used anywhere near as much then so I'm just a bit annoyed that they make it look like the Doc needs the sonic screwdriver to get out of almost every situation when he really doesn't need it at all.

Yeah, but I think that was just the stored energy wiping out their systems. I read somewhere that the Lumic Cybermen were allergic to gold, but had the problem fixed in the prototype stages before it could be used against them.

How does a robot/ human brain thing be allergic to something? I think that golden orb thing could only by used once every 3 hours which is wy the didn't reuse it in 'The age of steel'.

first part of the question: the Doctor needed to kill them some how, and the writers thought of that. also its a half human too, so it might have soem allergies.

second question: becuase it was the age of steel, not the age of gold

No, because they used it in the first part with the Lumic Cybermen in parralel and not the second part of the episode. That's why I said maybe because it needs recharging.

I know that at least some of the old Cybermen had more human parts than just a brain. The first ones were supposed to be heavily augmented humanoids rather than robots with a human brain, so it's a safe bet that they had enough organic parts to be allergic to things.

Arn't allergies just the immune system over-reacting so I don't think they would have allergies. Also since all the organic parts are completely covered meaning they can't come into contact with any allergans anyhow. And gold wasn't an allergan, it clogged the breathing apperatrus. Also what about partly cybernised people?

Although it's implied later on that there was some kind of "allergic" reaction to it, seeing as they only needed gold bullets to kill them. I'm a bit sketchy on that part of Who history though.

It must have been an allergy cause I can remember in one of the eipsodes with Sylvester Mcoy that Ace( his companion at the time) used gold coins fired from a sling shot to kill them. Although with all that armour I fail to see how it could have effected them at all.

Oh yeah, I'm amazed this hasn't come up yet, but which doctors/companions/villans/monsters does everyone like best? As for me...

Doctors:
1) Tom Baker - wins at everything.
2) John Pertwee - he was like Einstein crossed with a pimp.
3) David Tennant - very good actor, really knows how to make the part his own.

Companions:
1) Romana (second regeneration) - having the doctor travel with another Time Lord (or lady, in this case) was just awesome. Plus the actress who played her was hawt shit back in her day.
2) Sarah-Jane Smith - brilliant character, brilliant actress.
3) Jack Harkness - a time-travelling bisexual conman. Enough said.

Villans:
1) Dalek Supreme - forget the Emperor or Davros, Dalek Supreme was just so damn cool.
2) The Master - everyone needs an arch-nemesis.
3) Davros - evil genius, never seems to die, part Dalek.
